Ticket #1547 (new feature)
Format.GML: introduce option to postpone parsing of the geometries

This is not the most common use-case, but it is one IMHO. Imagine you want to use Format.GML to fill an attribute table. Now the parsing of geometries can be quite consuming, and you might want to postpone the parsing until it is really necessary, e.g. when the user presses the highlight feature button in the toolbar above the grid. Currently there is no way to do this.
My proposal would be to introduce a property for this, and to cache the DOMElement on the feature so it can be easily parsed later on when necessary.
